Manchester United State That Cristiano Ronaldo Is NOT For Sale Following Agent Meeting With Chelsea Boss

Manchester United have made it abundantly clear to Cristiano Ronaldo that he will not be for sale this summer, according to reports.

Despite coming off the back of a season which saw Ronaldo secure Manchester United’s Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award, the Portuguese international is reportedly unhappy with the current state of affairs at the club. 

Marking his return to the club by scoring 24 goals in an admittedly disastrous season for United, the 37-year-old was for many one of few bright spots in an exceptionally dimly lit season.

Reports emerged earlier this week that Ronaldo had been offered by his agent Jorge Mendes to Bayern Munich.

The Bundesliga giants reportedly turned down any potential move to bring Ronaldo to the club, due to the heavy financial burden any such signing would have brought. 

Following this, it has also been stated that by the ever-reliable David Ornstein of The Athletic that Mendes offered his client to United’s fierce Premier League rivals Chelsea

With both Chelsea potentially Bayern losing starting strikers this summer in Romelu Lukaku and Robert Lewandowski respectively, it appears that Mendes is doing what he can to secure a move for his client.

However, despite the work of Mendes and the seemingly growing unhappiness of Ronaldo at Old Trafford, United have made it clear that he will not be put up for sale. 

As reported by The Mirror’s Simon Mullock, sources inside Manchester United have stated that: “Cristiano is not for sale. We want, and fully expect him to be with us next season.”

It is understandable why United would be so keen for Ronaldo to remain at the club.

Last season only Ronaldo and fellow countryman Bruno Fernandes managed to score more than ten Premier League goals.

Additionally, this summer window has already seen the departures of Edinson Cavani and Jesse Lingard confirmed. 

It has also been previously reported that both Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford could be utilized as strikers this coming season due to the limited forward options at the club.

However, last season Martial and Rashford only managed five Premier League goals combined in a poor season for the pair. This is 13 less than Ronaldo managed on his own, again explaining why new boss Erik ten Hag could be so desperate to keep his star striker.

That is not to say that if Ronaldo remains at the club he will be without any new forward options to help ease the burden of leading the United line. 

It has been heavily reported that Manchester United are chasing Ajax’s Antony.

Reports earlier this week revealed that the young winger is “determined” to join his former boss Ten Hag at the Manchester club.

Last season the tricky forward produced 12 goals and 10 assists in his 32 appearances in all competitions.

It now remains to be seen if Ronaldo, who only returned to United himself late last summer will be joined by the winger.
